From the manufacturer
Founded in 1990 by roboticists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, iRobot is THE robot company. For more than twenty years, our focus has been to provide robots that empower people to do more – whether that's in defense and security, telepresence communication or in the home.
iRobot Roomba 780 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets and Allergies
The iRobot Roomba 780 vacuum cleaning robot removes up to 98% of dirt, dust and pet hair – on its own – at the touch of a button. Using iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology, the robot thoroughly vacuums the entire floor, including hard-to-reach spots under furniture.
3-Stage Cleaning with AeroVac Series 2 – Roomba 780 picks up an amazing amount of dirt, pet hair and other debris with its patented 3-stage cleaning system. A spinning side brush cleans along wall edges, counter-rotating brushes act like a dustpan and broom, and a powerful AeroVac Series 2 vacuum pulls dirt, hair, and debris off the brushes to the back of the bin. Roomba 780 uses a new advanced cleaning head which provides superior performance for picking up pet hair, dirt, dust and more.
iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology – iAdapt is iRobot’s advanced system of software and sensors that allows Roomba to clean more of your room, more thoroughly. It ensures Roomba vacuums every section of your room multiple times, cleaning areas you can’t easily reach including under furniture, around everyday obstacles, and along walls. It even avoids stairs and drop-offs, navigates past soft barriers such as couch skirts, recognizes cords and carpet fringe, and self-adjusts to clean hardwood, carpet, and linoleum.
Long-lasting battery – The robot uses sophisticated power management software that results in 50% longer battery life than previous Roomba generations, ensuring hundreds of cleaning cycles under proper use.
Cliff detecting technology prevents your Roomba from falling down stairs
Control Roomba by infrared remote without getting up
Roomba can be scheduled to perform up to seven cleaning sessions per week
Virtual Wall Lighthouses use infrared beams to block Roomba from entering off-limit areas
Roomba’s wall-following technology allows it to clean along edges and corners
Roomba self-adjusts between floor types, providing optimized cleaning

We have a new construction home with a open floor plan that is all hardwood on the main level with 3 area rugs. We have a large family room that leads into a dinning/kitchen/breakfast nook. The idea behind getting this was we have cats and I didn't want to be sweeping every other day for cat hair.
Does it work? Yes! I have it programmed to run every morning and with 4 cats currently in the house the "bag" is full after every run. So what makes this hard? Well there is a learning curve with a Roomba.
We spent the first 2 weeks finding all the problem areas:
- It loves to wedge its self under the sofa, so check the heights of you sofas and other furniture.
- It loves to lock its self in our powder room, so any rooms with a door need the door closed or propped open with something Roomba can't move.
- You must keep you floor free of toys and other small objects! Cat toys and other small things will get sucked up and jammed inside.
- If you have pets expect to thoroughly dismantle and clean your Roomba every 14 outings (so every 2 weeks if you run daily) maybe even weekly. The dust and hair get everywhere inside the Roomba, I have to take off the wheels and clean the gears, brushes obviously need lots of attention, the main wheel well gets chunks of hair that cause the wheel not to turn as easily.
I think this was something I wanted to love but just can't because I still put a lot of effort into cleaning. Instead of sweeping I'm picking things off the floor and cleaning a Roomba. I can't deny that it works, I can tell the moment I get home if Roomba got stuck and wasn't able to finish it's run. Just be prepared to still do work on your end and see which side you'd fall into to: Am I training my Roomba to clean, or is the Roomba training you to be cleaner.
The attached photos are of what the undercarriage of the Roomba looks like 9 months after purchase, as well as the tools I have found are better for regular cleaning and maintenance.
Though a hefty price tag, I definitely think the Roomba is worth the cost, assuming you know what comes along with ownership. The Roomba drastically reduced the amount of time we have to spend regularly vacuuming the house, keeping our house looking much cleaner and making our weekend deep-cleaning much easier. It's very nice to come home to a house with a clean-looking floor, and I can definitely tell if the Roomba didn't get all the way done. It's not a "set and forget" kind of machine, though. Regular maintenance is required to keep the Roomba operating efficiently.
*Good coverage and ability to clean both hard surfaces and tile - The Roomba runs for a little less than two hours on a fully charged battery, and it seemed to completely cover the whole house at least once.
*Easy to work - The accompanying DVD provided all the necessary information, including how to set the schedule. So far, no questions we couldn't answer.
*The schedule - I love the scheduler. I have ours set to run Mon, Wed, Fri at 10:30 AM after we have all left to go to work.
*Navigation - The Roomba easily maneuvered its way from the tile to carpet with no trouble, and can even get up on the brick work in front of the fireplace! The high shag of the area carpet is too much for it, so it just goes around it. Makes it an excellent place to toss dog toys so they don't accidentally get sucked up.
* Noise - This thing is NOT quiet, particularly on hard floors! Maybe not quite as loud as a normal vacuum, but be prepared to have to turn up the sound on the TV if you want to run it while you're around.
* Sensors - I sometimes can't understand why the Roomba takes the path it does around the house. Eventually everything gets clean, but watching it move can be really frustrating!
*Pre-clean - After coming home a few times to see the Roomba sitting in the middle of the living room with an error symbol because a dog or cat toy got caught in the spinner, I realized I would have to scan the house to pick up anything that could get caught in the brushes. I also adjusted the chairs of our dining and kitchen tables to ensure easy movement around them. It's a time-waster and battery-suck for the Roomba to have to slooooowly navigate between all of them.
*Roomba maintenance - I hadn't really considered how much cleaning and maintenance this thing would need. If someone in the house has long hair (like me) or quite a few pets (also like me), a Roomba will need regular cleaning to ensure proper performance. About once every two weeks, I flip the Roomba over, remove the brushes, and clean everything out. (Photo is attached). It takes about 15 minutes to cut away all the hair that has gotten wound up in the brushes and along the connections. If you don't have pets or anyone with long hair, you might not have to do it as often, and it likely won't take as long.
*Internal filter replacement is NECESSARY to ensure optimal performance. I had admittedly forgotten about those two yellow filters inside the waste bin, and once I changed them out, the suction and dirt-pulling drastically improved.
*Filter and brush replacements cost about $20 for 6 months worth of supplies.
*Getting back to home station - Almost never does the Roomba get back to the charging station before the battery runs out, meaning a "find the Roomba" game I have to play three times per week. It's usually just sitting in the middle of a room somewhere....lol
*Cleaning tools - Our Roomba came with extra brushes, filters, and a cleaning tool. The cleaning tool is useless! I found that a small Exacto knife and a plastic comb to be the best tools to clean the Roomba (photo attached). Be sure to also have a tiny screwdriver (like one for eyeglasses) to unscrew the plastic outside brush. So much hair got caught in there that it had stopped spinning!
